THE SYRIAC VERSION OF THE APOCALYPSE
Dissertation and Translation by John Gwynn
“I have endeavoured to lead to the conclusion that this Apocalypse is a portion of the original “Philoxenian” New Testament, as translated A.D. 508, for Philoxenus of Mabug, by Polycarpus “the Chorepiscopus.” I have endeavoured to show, farther, that the other version of the Apocalypse, first printed by De Dieu in 1627, is a revision of this, and belongs probably to the Syriac New Testament of Thomas of Harkel, of A.D. 616.”
